    It then raced down one of the busiest streets in Paris with police cars in pursuit.

    When the runaway equine started running the wrong way up a one-way street along the Seine, a cop car managed to get next to it and an officer grabbed its reins.

    Police say the horse suffered slight injuries because it fell several times during its escape.
